I know that previously chromium did not work on the Pi Zero. Is this still the case or does it now work with the latest Raspbian build?

Raspbian Jessie with Pixel Desktop since the September release includes chromium-browser suitable for all Raspberry Pi's, though some extensions / addons are not compatible with ARMv6 Pi's:

Thanks! So the outlook is good. :)

Did you happen to see a list of supported/unsupported extensions? I'm particularly interested in finding out if it will be able to run the Web Speech API. If it does then this just majorly enhanced my project.

Only flash won't work. Everything else should be fine.
